Chantal Lescure 2018 Beaune 1er Cru Les Chouacheux

From a 1.5 hectare parcel of 50+ year-old massale selection vines on clay/limestone soils rich in iron, in this excellent 1er cru vineyard at the foot of the slope in Beaune. (Near Pommard and below "Les Vignes Franches" and the "Cos des Mouches") 2018 is a great vintage for the Chantal Lescure "Chouacheux" which  shows very floral aromas of ripe, fresh red and balck fruits, with hints of brown spice, citrus zest and earth. There is ripe, sappy, chalky fruit on the palate which is silky and elegant with raspberry, red currant and cherry fruit, really lovely and very long - backed by firm acidity and the ever-present core of minerality found in the Chantal Lescure wines. Quite delicious now, this beautiful Chouacheux is highly recommended and should be best 2024 - 2035+.  David Lillie

Chantal Lescure 2018 Bourgogne Rouge Les Verduns

The Chantal Lescure Bourgogne Rouge "Les Verduns" is from 45 year-old vines on a soil of "marnes blanches"  in this unusual west-facing parcel high on the slope adjacent to Pommard "Les Vignots." Vinification is with whole-clusters giving a firm structure to this very classy Bourgogne Rouge. The wine shows elegant high-toned  quite floral aromas of earthy Morello cherry and strawberry with hints of spice, mint and rose petal. The palate is earthy and mineral with saline acidity underlying ripe wild strawberry and red currant fruit. This shows the ripeness of 2018 but with lovely bright fruit and freshness.The finish is long and sappy, dominated by mineral and red currant  flavors that linger on the palate. This is not a fruit bomb, but is a very satisfying red Burgundy that will benefit from many hours of aeration or cellaring for 5 to 8  years. David Lillie

Chantal Lescure 2018 Côte de Beaune Clos de Topes Bizot Rouge

"Le Clos des Topes Bizot" is a unique spot with vines planted in 1960,  high on the slope in Beaune just above the 1er Cru "L'Ecu," facing east, in a terroir of clay and pebbles over limestone. The grapes from this high elevation vineyard are harvested late and undergo a short pre-fermentation maceration, aging is in two and three year-old barrels. The 2018 shows high-toned aromas of ripe black cherry and red currant fruit with violet, brown spice, earth and citrus, quite elegant. The palate is dense and earthy with sappy black cherry and black raspberry - intensely mineral with firm acidity, earth and black fruits that linger in the long finish. This is a quite elegant, beautifully balanced and "mineral" Burgundy at a very reasonable price, that will benefit from a few hours open or three to five years of cellaring.  David Lillie

Chantal Lescure 2018 Pommard 1er Cru Les Bertins

From organically farmed old massale-selection vines with small grapes, in Les Bertins in the southern part of Pommard, close to Volnay on soils of brown clay over hard limestone and limestone debris. Les Bertins has a greater amount of limestone than other Pommard premier crus, and the wines are sometimes a bit lighter and more "Volnay-like" in character. This shows the classic boldness of Pommard and the fresh ripeness of the 2018 vintage with aromas of wild rose, black raspberry, cherry liqueur and spice. The medium weight palate is dense with cooling minerality and mouth coating, silky tannins framed with ripe red cherry and macerated raspberry, finishing with long, delicate notes of spice, rose hips, and black tea leaf. This is quite delicious as a young wine but will obviously benefit from five years of cellaring, drink until 2035.

Chantal Lescure 2018 Volnay

The Chantal Lescure Volnay is from 50+ year-old vines on sandy clay soils over limestone. Fermentation is with wild yeasts in cuve inox followed by 18 months in barrel, approximately 20% of which are new (500L), bottled without fining or filtration.The wine shows a bright deep red/garnet color with black cherry, blackberry and red currant aromas, quite floral and elegant with complex hints of earth,  brown spice and tea. With aeration, the palate shows a round, velvety, chalky texture backed by firm acidity with violet, plum, cherry and strawberry fruit, mint, bitter chocolate and earth that continue in the long, sappy finish. This is a lovely "village" Volnay that is delicious now, but decant if possible, this will really sing in three to five years and until 2030+. David Lillie

Comte Armand 2016 Pommard 1er Cru Clos des Epeneaux

In the decidedly difficult 2016 Comte Armand's Clos des Epeneaux is a lovely wine in the making, though with a more lifted and energetic character, rather than a stern one. The nose offers aromas of black and red cherries, with cool herbal aromas and hints of oak and spice. The midweight palate is supple, rather than sinewy with loads of black and red fruits, savory earth notes and a cool, yet pungent sense of minerality on a  deceptively long finish. John McIlwain

Des Croix 2018 Beaune 1er Cru Bressandes

If there were a yearbook award for "Most Improved" this wine would get it. In the early days Bressandes was a challenge. Even in an excellent vintage like 2010, it seemed a struggle to develop enough material during fermentation. But through quite a lot of rehabilitative work in the vineyard and slow replacement of inferior vine material this has developed into a powerhouse. The fruit is always generous but the thin soil on a high steep slope lends a mineral intensity to the wine that is very compelling. The 2017 was a standout in a vintage chock full of terrific wines.

Domaine des Croix 2018 Beaune

Sourced from several parcels spread across the village's diverse soils and climates, this is a serious village wine. It's marked by raspberry and darker berries like black cherry as well as baking spices and a touch of hoisin in the mid-palate. There is good weight here and enough acidity to suggest that this will age well for at least five to eight years. Another very good value.

Domaine des Croix 2018 Beaune 1er Cru Cents Vignes

Cents Vignes lies at the north end of Beaune, just below "Bressandes" and is generally always the first picked of the premier crus at Domaine des Croix. The wine is composed of two parcels of quite sandy well-drained soils that yield early-ripening fruit. While the more extracted style of the estate's early years tended to yield wines that felt a bit flabby, today the fresher style means a Cents Vignes that is much crisper. The fruit here in 2018 is bright red berries, spicy strawberry and cherry, with a savory floral element in the middle and a touch of raspberry sherbet in the finish. This is great fun to drink and will improve, but honestly it's incredibly satisfying now. Sam Ehrlich

Domaine des Croix 2018 Beaune 1er Cru Les Tuvilains

Tuvilains is a recent addition to the lineup at the estate. It sits much further south and just below Pertuisots on the slope. The dense clay in the soil is rich in iron oxide and makes sturdy structured wines. This is the yardstick for extraction levels these days at the domaine. The 2018 is certainly squared-shouldered in its mouthfeel but once again it shows plenty of pure and bright red fruit and the finish shows a lovely mineral coolness. This may take a couple of years to really come together but will be delicious with a little time in a decanter and should age very well. Sam Ehrlich

Domaine des Croix 2018 Beaune 1er Cru Pertuisots

Pertuisots is part of the original Domaine Duchet purchase and has been a consistent star since the inception of des Croix. Sitting just below Les Aigrots and the legendary Clos des Mouches on the way to Pommard, the soils here are also rich with iron and limestone. This is generally a powerful wine  with formidable structure in its youth,  but as it unwinds the fruit sweetens and a beautiful gamy saltiness develops. There is always a decent percentage of whole clusters in the fermentation to help balance the natural intensity here.Sam Ehrlich

Domaine des Croix 2018 Bourgogne Rouge

Bourgogne at Domaine des Croix is a limited affair, coming from a small parcel of declassified fruit in Savigny and is the smallest of any bottling at the estate, Corton Charlemagne included. But don't let its size put you off. This is a pretty extraordinary Bourgogne, bursting with pure strawberry and cherry skin fruit notes, a little dark spice and just a touch of rosy floral character. The sense of snap and energy here is beguiling to say the least. If you do not buy this today, let me assure you that there will not be a second opportunity. Terrific for the level and highly recommended. Sam Ehrlich

Domaine des Croix 2018 Corton Grand Cru Greves

This parcel on the Grand Cru hill of Corton was acquired in 2009 as part of a multi-domaine sale (the Chambertin went to Rousseau). Greves sits just over halfway up the east face of Corton, adjacent to Louis Latour's Chateau Grancey  and just below the legendary Clos du Roi. This is real Corton, always with terrific power and mineral intensity.

Domaine Jessiaume 2018 Santenay 1er Cru Gravieres

Firstly, let me say that the warm 2018 vintage will be a vintage to take advantage of the value that one still finds in Santenay. The village tends to ripen late and in cool vintages can produce very lean wines. Domaine Jessiaume owns more of this Premier Cru than any other estate and theirs should be considered a benchmark. The site takes its name from the gravel and stones in the soil and as one would expect, it produces structured and mineral wines. The 2018 shows the ripe dark red and black fruit that has characterized the vintage, with raspberry, cherry and a touch of blueberry, as well as savory spices and well-judged wood. But the finish narrows, with elegant mineral notes and good precision. The vines are on average fifty five years old and the quality of material here is on full display.   Sam Ehrlich

Lequin-Colin 2018 Bourgogne Rouge

Honest Burgundy at this price is an increasingly rare bird these days. From two vineyards in Santenay with EcoCert certification, the 2018 is full and round upon opening, with juicy raspberry and black cherry fruit, baking spices and a touch of cola. But with air, it gains tension and elegance and the Burgundy minerality becomes more apparent. This is very satisfying and will likely improve, but why wait? Bottled under screwcap. Sam Ehrlich

Louis Chenu 2018 Savigny-Les-Beaune Vieilles Vignes

The wines of Louis Chenu have received a good deal of very positive press recently and opening a bottle of the '18 Savigny "Vieilles Vignes," it is not hard to see why. The domaine dates from 1914 but the Chenu sisters who run the domaine together have made considerable strides in the vineyards. The farming is certified organic and the winemaking very classic - destemmed, short cold-maceration and minimal new oak. The result is classic Savigny, assembled from five parcels, with red cherry, rhubarb, allspice and lovely mineral structure. The wine is poised, precise and very tasty now but this will certainly improve with a few years in bottle. I also want to give the sisters credit for my favorite winery website that I've seen in a while

Rateau 2018 Beaune 1er Cru Les Bressandes

Jean-Claude Rateau has a large parcel in the 1er Cru Les Bressandes on a steep slope facing east with pebbly clay/limestone soils, conducted in biodynamic farming since 1979. The soil is warm and well-drained giving ripe, structured wines. There is a 21-day cuvaison with manual cap-punching followed by 18 months in old barrels.Even with the minimal extraction practiced at the estate, the 2018 Bressandes shows a dense red/black color and aromas of ripe black cherry and blackberry, quite deep with sous-bois, violet, graphite and citrus. The palate is dense, elegant and chalky with blackberry, earth, bitter chocolate and minerals with terrific length of black fruits, earth and juicy acidity. Given the weight and ripeness of the vintage, the wine still seems balanced and frames the copious fruit in ample acidity and tannin. This is a beautiful wine that will give great pleasure in its youth and should be a superb mature wine as well, with a long life ahead of it...  David Lillie

Rateau 2018 Beaune 1er Cru Les Reversées

From vines grown in the calcareous clay soils of Les Reversées premier cru toward the bottom of the hill in the center of the slope by Les Teurons. This is a bit more delicate and lower in alcohol than Rateau's "Bressandes" but still quite deep and generous in 2018 showing ripe  black cherry, boysenberry, notes of cherry pit and earth on the nose. The palate is quite dense but still with nice brightness with ripe black fruits, hints of iodine and iron and  soil beneath supple structure. Succulent acidity and savory mineral notes offset the ripeness and lend energy and drive on a rich, palate-coating finish which is very long with elegant black raspberry and red currant fruit.  The purity of fruit and earth notes are finely balanced - this is an excellent Burgundy for the mid-term. A fine pairing with braised chicken thighs with mustard, tarragon, and shallots. A great value from the pioneer of biodynamic Burgundy!

Rateau 2018 Beaune Les Prevoles

Jean-Claude Rateau's domain has been Biodynamic since 1979 and produces lovely light-bodied, old fashioned Burgundies. The 2018 Beaune Les Prévoles (a lieu-dit below 1er Cru Chouacheux and les Tuvilains) was vinified with the stems, bringing just the right structure to this lush and beautiful wine which shows beautiful ripe aromas of cherry and black raspberry with rose, earth, citrus and brown spice.  The palate is chalky and sapid, showing the ripeness of the 2018s, with lush berry fruits enveloping firm acidity and mineral flavors. Really a lovely wine and quite delicous now, full and ripe enough for grilled meats, as well as chicken and pork dishes and cheeses such as morbier, tomme de savoie. This should benefit from a bit of aging but is quite beautiful as a young wine, drink until 2035.  David Lillie

Rateau 2019 Beaune Clos des Mariages

Located toward the bottom of the slope beneath Beaune Grèves and adjacent to Les Cents Vignes, Clos des Mariages is a mix of young and very old vines planted in clay and brown limestone soils. "This fertile soil gives wines that are open and joyous, with delicate spice notes, giving great pleasure in their youth and capable of long-term aging." (J-C Rateau) Indeed the 2019 Clos des Mariages is a gorgeous wine showing a bright mélange of black cherry, strawberry and raspberry with hints of spice, citrus, licorice and violet. The palate shows dense, chalky fruit, sappy and ripe but retaining a nice lightness of body with firm acidity and mineral flavors that continue in the very long, juicy finish. This is absolutely delicious now and should drink well continuously over the next five to ten years. David Lillie

From the village portion of Les Damodes on the Vosne side of Nuits St. Georges, long-time organic farming, minimal use of SO2. The 2017 "Les Damodes" shows a bright red/black color with very floral aromas of black cherry and strawberry liqueur, with hints of mint, licorice and brown spice. There is deep black cherry, strawberry and red currant fruit on the palate which is chalky, round and ripe and is nicely balanced by bright acidity, a bit of tannin and a hint of oak. This opens up with aeration becoming more complex, with pretty red fruits lingering in the finish. Quite delicious now, this will show best in 5 to 8 years when the tannins and oak have integrated.  David Lillie

The fresh, chalky palate offers a melange of red fruits - raspberry, red currant, cherry - with good concentration over an earthy mineral core with fine fresh acidity and nice lift on the finish.  This will be fun drinking as a young wine due to the fresh, vibrrant fruit and ought to shine with 3-5 years in the cellar and beyond.  David Lillie

Domaine Trapet 2018 Bourgogne Rouge

Produced from young-vine Gevrey, this is a terrific Bourgogne. The fruit is bright red, full of wild strawberries and cherries, and the feeling of weightlessness here is what makes Burgundy special. The finish is more salty and cool, after the peppery spice-driven Passtoutgrains. You will be left wondering where the bottle went. Sam Ehrlich

Domaine Trapet 2018 Cote de Nuits-Village Meix Fringuet

This is sourced from vines in Marsannay and the character is distinctly different. The fruit is just a touch darker, with a floral note that suggests violets as well as roses. In the mid-palate, there is a brambly forest-y character that gives extra dimension and savoriness. The sense of limestone here is quite stark and there is good grip and structure, particularly for the level. This will age well in the mid-term and would make a great addition to the cellar at a relative bargain. Sam Ehrlich

The 2016 Faiveley Clos de Bèze already offers a dazzling array of dark and red fruits, wild berries, pure cherry, and turned earth on the nose. The concentrated palate offers spicy cherry and plum flavors with notes of game, mustard seed, and black tea over a layered and dense mineral core of impressive length and complexity giving way to a long, detailed, stony finish.

Champs de l'Abbaye 2019 Bourgogne Pinot Noir

 From 10 to 50 year-old vines grown on limestone soils (Middle Jurassic!) in the commune of Aluze, Cotes Chalonnaise, certified organic since 1999. This is a lovely Bourgogne Rouge, showing the ripeness of the 2019 vintage, but in a medium-bodied, balanced and bright style that is quite delicious!  Vivid aromas of black cherry, raspberry, violet and pepper, with a bright palate of blackberry and spicy red-currant/cherry fruit framed in mineral flavors and firm acidity. Delicious now served cool, it will benefit from decanting or a few years in the cellar as well. DL

Made from young vines of Pinot Fin, from three diffeent massale selections, with 10% Chardonnay. The wine is delicate and delicious and should be served a bit cool. The aromas are vivid and very pretty - tart black cherry, black raspberry, citrus, coffee and violet. The palate is light and refreshing, but quite ripe, velvety and sapid in 2019, with cherry and berry fruits and hints of citrus, spice and earth. Serve with chicken and white meats and save some for grilled foods next summer. Just delicious and only 5 cs for the US...  David Lillie

Génot-Boulanger 2018 Pommard 1er Cru Clos Blanc

It's always a pleasure to taste the wines of a grower steadily through the years, to chart their progress and observe the little adjustments that take wines from good to great. Guillaume and Aude at Génot-Boulanger have been on a steady upward trajectory for some time now but when I tasted this Pommard 1er Cru today, I had to stop and smile. "Clos Blanc" sits on the northern  side of Pommard, adjacent to "Grand Epenots," and takes its name from soil colored white with limestone. The nose is deep with red and blue fruit and on the palate feels round, with beautiful savory spice notes. Pommard has long been considered rustic and burly, so the silkiness here is particularly striking and it feels both complex and eminently drinkable now. This will make a great addition to the holiday table for anyone looking for a special treat. Highly recommended. Sam Ehrlich

Guillot-Broux 2018 Coteaux Bourguignons Rouge

The appellation "Coteaux Bourguignons" covers a lot of ground and can be made up any number of Burgundy's varieties. In this case, it's a fifty/fifty blend of Pinot Noir and Gamay made from organically farmed purchased fruit. This is a lovely juicy quaffer, brimming with pure wild strawberry fruit and while I don't have the specs on the percentage of whole bunches, I'd bet that it's high given the amount of cedar and spice notes. Made and priced for drinking every day. Scoop it up before it's gone. Sam Ehrlich
